Have a Nice Day (if you support the right team)

Found on the antenna of a car parked near the baseball stadium during a game. Do any other countries besides us and maybe Canada have antenna balls?

Areal view of photo location, 7th and Pine Streets, downtown STL.

In a comment earlier today, U "R" Us asked me to add an historic family photo to this post, my first antenna ball picture. This is from the time I was just getting interested in photography. It is a one-eyed Jack, so to speak, from the US restaurant chain, Jack In The Box. The antenna was on a beat up pick-up truck near a trail head in Death Valley National Park, one of the most desolate, remote and beautiful places in America.

Aerial view of photo location at the head of Golden Canyon trail.

TOMORROW: Hot foot

Antenna balls went out in the 70's I thought, once most cars were fitted with electric antennas that retracted automatically when the ignition is turned off!

Reminds me of one of your classic shots from Death Valley. You should put it up on flickr and link to it.

Nice blurs behind this'n though.
